2022 Provincial Election

The provincial election is on June 2nd, 2022. To help inform voters and candidates about key poverty-related issues, the Guelph & Wellington Task Force for Poverty Elimination is creating and compiling resources.

Voting has the power to change policies. Many of the issues people living in poverty experience, such as homelessness, food insecurity, and income inequality are caused by public policy. Poverty is rooted in structural and systemic factors, not in personal failings. This election, you can show your support for eliminating poverty by voting for the party you feel will best address poverty issues.

We hope these resources are helpful. Please feel free to download, print and share them!
